CrossFit; I used to have a very different perspective of it than I do now. I used to be a skeptic. I truly was. To begin with, my perspective of it was:
My Perspective Before CrossFit:
I would watch people do it, and part of me thought, ‘I am NOT strong enough to do that,’ and ‘Those lifts just look crazy,’ and I even thought, ‘I don’t want to be too muscular.’ Yet, now I can say that my whole perspective of exercise has been and is being shifted by CrossFit in such a positive way.
My Perspective After CrossFit:
Now I’m swallowing all of those misconceptions and saying that CrossFit has helped heal my mind and body in ways that I didn’t think possible. It’s been like the cherry on top when it come to recovery.
The other day I found myself on a run, and I realized I wasn’t going over and over the calories I was burning in my head. I wasn’t worried about whether or not I was running fast enough, whether or not I would do an abs workout along with it, or how much I ‘could eat’ after running.
Nowadays, I’m eating when I’m hungry. I still vaguely count calories, but that doesn’t mean I go to bed starving. I probably eat anywhere in the range of 2300-3000 calories depending on the day.
